If you have an eclectic taste in music, TAUK’s North Shore gig might be the one for you.

“On their third studio album ‘Sir Nebula,’ TAUK tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand their all-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock and jazz,” states the group’s online biography.

TAUK — which includes guitarist Matt Jalbert, bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist/organist Alric ‘A.C.’ Carter and drummer Isaac Teel — explored new sounds on their latest record.

“From the hazy atmospherics of ‘Time’s Up’ and soaring riffs of ‘Program Select’ to the urgent rhythms of ‘Shenanigans’ and sprawling melodies of ‘Where You Are,’ ‘Sir Nebula’ finds TAUK introducing a cosmically inspired element to their music,” continues the bio.

“Sir Nebula” follows TAUK’s full-length releases “Headroom,” “Collisions” and “Homunculus,” which released in 2015, 2014 and 2013, respectively. If the quartet continues to produce music at this rate, they’re going to become a force to be reckoned with.

“TAUK’s creative connection traces back to childhood, when longtime friends Dolan, Jalbert and Carter formed their first band in seventh grade and held practice in their school basement.

“After playing together in various projects over the years, the trio brought Teel into the fold in 2012, cementing the final lineup,” continues the bio.

The group performs a free concert at Crystal Bay Casino on Wednesday, March 29, at 10 p.m.

The venue is located at 14 NV 28. Learn more online at http://www.crystalbaycasino.com.
